So far so good!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These were what I was looking for! I can do it all from ice climbing to glacier travel. The true Alaskan crampon!
What is the size range for boots that these crampons will accommodate? I have the Nepal Evo boots in a 47, will these crampons fit? I know some crampons require a longer bone for boots over size 45, and I cant seem to find this information anywhere.
Hi Sam H.!
Thanks for reaching out to us with your questions!
Standard rule of thumb for most companies center bars is that they cut off from standard to long at size 12 US. So you would definitely need a longer bar for your boots.

Concerned about the lack of a strap to the toe piece like on other models (Stinger)... Is it possible to get this toe piece, and what was the reasoning behind going without a backup safety toe strap? (without a proper fit or with enough torque these toe welts have popped off on people)
Great Question! So most other manufacturers realized long ago that the metal strap/eyelet for "securing" the crampons on with a strap was no longer useful. The strap around the ankle is more than adequate for ensuring that the crampon will stay on your foot if for some reason you pop out of the crampon(s).
Ideally the informed climber will take some time at home and dial in the fit for their crampons before they get out on route and I think that's what BD and other manufacturers have been aiming for with this design.
